A wonderful family occasion captured by the Poole family back in 1938 where this family celebrated the arrival of the fourth generation while the great grandparents were still alive and well. While my mother and two sisters lived to see the fourth generation none of their husbands did and that shows how rare that was back in the 1930's! Commissioned by Mr. JJ Whelan of Clonard, Wexford it might be interesting to trace the family, perhaps that baby is still alive and well today?
